    Never expected that. This is only my 2nd day with the new baby, it seemed fine all day yesterday -- intermittent use. Was low 20% so charged it a bit before bedtime ... upto 30% and it died in the night.

    Not sure if I should be concerned or not yet....it's charging right now.

    Maybe the battery meter status is not yet calibrated?

    Yeah if it was at 30%, its not uncommon for it to die overnight if not charged. I can go to bed leaving it at 100% full and when I wake up it could be at 80%. So 20% or 30% drain sounds about right.

    I would use the power saving modes if you are going to keep it off the charger at night. Right now I'm at 60% battery and my device has been running for 17 hours and 9 minutes. I use my device constantly all day. Hopefully you are able to get the same type of battery life or better. :)

    I'm treating this phone just like I did my LG Dare. The first two times I fully charged my phone I drained it all the way down. After that I put it on the charger every night, no matter where the battery is. My dare still holds a charge for days after 2 years of constant use.
    Now I know these are two totally different machines, but it's the same type of battery. I have my extra charger at work in case I'm surfing and listening to music all day.

    So I made some adjustments, fully charged the battery disabled wi-fi overnight and turned off my primary email checking....and woke to a 100% battery this morning. :)
